Java: a Library for Swing GUI

The planned creation of a desktop application to build the GUI of the selected Swing. Is there any ready library to build the interface similar in functionality to Eclipse and IDEA? That is, the split window on the area with the panels on the sides and bottom, dockable, dockable, folding, etc.

You can use as the basis for IDEA or NetBeans or Eclipse RCP.
Eclipse RCP is built on SWT. Don't know about NetBeans. But on IDEA it is possible to clarify: as I understand it, the source code of the Community version offers not only the platform to build applications, but all of the code contains classes for the integration of functionality for Java development? That is, if Eclipse RCP and NetBeans Platform gives blank GUI, which can then independently fill their "Ruseckas", that IDEA did not seem so, or am I mistaken? - Jamison commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:21
This is what is written by the developers of IntelliJ IDEA:
>Is the IntelliJ Platform a general-purpose platform, suitable for building any desktop applications, similar to Eclipse RCP and the NetBeans Platform?
The IntelliJ Platform is great for building IDEs and other tools geared for developers. It is not, however, a general-purpose platform. We don't recommend building general-purpose desktop applications on top of the platform, since a lot of IDE-related concepts are still present in the platform itself.
So that IDEA is probably not the right option. - Jamison commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:24
I think you fit the NB Platform according to examples of the constructed apps, they just are positioned as a common platform for building applications. - Armand_Kihn3 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:27
Yes, the NB Platform looked. In principle, all of the essential functionality is there, but I'm afraid that it will be heavy to learn. But, I'll have to try to build a demo example to see how it fits. The second option, which dug up — JIDE. The benefit for Open Source projects like they provide a free license. - Jamison commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:30
The NB Platform is not difficult, if you have experience with swing, and NetBeans, as well as the ability and desire to read the documentation. - birdie.Huel32 commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:33
